A Portrait of BJ Penn

This weekend BJ “The Prodigy” Penn will make his return from a very brief retirement to face off against rising star Rory MacDonald.  Although only 33 years old, Penn has already cemented his legacy in MMA.  He is a former two-division UFC champion and the first ever non-Brazilian winner of the World Jiu-Jitsu Championship. Yet, in true martial artist fashion BJ Penn believes his journey has only just begun.  He believes his prime is yet to come, and is still in pursuit of the perfect fight.

Will BJ Penn finally find the perfection he is seeking this weekend?  We will soon find out.  In the meantime, check out this very interesting mini-documentary about BJ Penn’s life.  BJ Penn is an excellent representation of a martial artist.
